Award-winning writer Cathy Macphail, master of the unexpected twist, leads readers into a tense and sometimes violent story before revealing the truth. Newly arrived on an estate in Glasgow, Logan is thrilled when he finds a friend. Baz seems cool and assured and brave. All the things that Logan is not. Their families are also very different – Baz’s family seem to care for him a lot; Logan is in perpetual conflict with his mother and stepfather. Being friends with Baz gets Logan in with a cool group and provides some action. A LOT of action. When things begin to go very wrong for the boys Logan has to rethink just who Baz is. And he is surprised by the answer.

Synopsis

Devil You Know by Cathy MacPhail

Baz was the kind of friend I wanted. Everyone seemed a bit afraid of him. Forced to move away from his dad in Aberdeen to a run-down Glasgow council estate, Logan thinks he's pretty lucky to have made any friends -- let alone Baz and the boys. Baz might have a bit of reputation, be a bit mouthy, but he's the kind of friend who'll stick up for you; who'll make life interesting -- or should that be dangerous? When Logan, Baz and the boys get caught up a local turf war Baz is the first to fight back. But the aftermath leads Logan and his friends deeper into a world of real-life gangs, threats and lethal revenge. How far will Baz go, and will Logan follow him? Award-winning author Cathy MacPhail once again delivers a stand-out, action-packed teen thriller with a sensational twist.

Reviews

Praise for Cathy MacPhail

‘Young adult fiction is going from strength to strength, led by authors like Cathy MacPhail’ – THE BOOKSELLER

About the Author

Cathy MacPhail

Scottish author Cathy McPhail won the Kathleen Fidler Award with her novel Run Zan Run, the Scottish Arts Council Award with her second novel, Fighting Back, a Royal Mail award and the 2010 Explore Award for Roxy's Baby and the 2010 Stockport Award and Royal Mail Award for Grass. Cathy's work is enormously popular with young teenagers, her trademarks being pacy and topical storylines. Cathy lives in Greenock, Scotland.

Cathy wrote Run Zan Run after her daughter Katie was bullied at school. Cathy now loves writing for children. Asked what she'd do if she wasn't a writer, she says: "If I wasn't paid to write, I'd still write books. What do I do in my spare time? I write. What is my hobby? Writing. I just love it. So, what would I be if I wasn't a writer? Bored stiff."

Cathy is the author of the heart-stopping and highly original crime thrillers Nemesis Boys. Reluctant readers in particular will be drawn to the whole package – the dramatic cover look, the short time frame in which all four thrillers are set, the short, pacy chapters, the cliff hangers and the dynamic, independent, resourceful boy hero.

Nemesis is the junior Bourne Identity so parents who are fans of Robert Ludlum’s writing will appreciate just how good and suitable the Nemesis quartet is for their late tween and teen offspring.

Devil you know is a fast-paced teen thriller with the author’s unique brand of real-life drama and shocking twists, the action-packed story of a group of boys dealing with friendship, trust and revenge on a Glasgow estate.
